Premier Event of 2021:

DEC Connection and Maynard's 150th Birthday Celebration

 

Sunday, Sept 19, 2021  11:30 AM - 7:00 PM

 

 

 

 

DEC Connection Events: Mill Tour (starts 11:30 am), Parade March (meet 12:30 pm), and Dinner at the Elks Lodge (starts 4 pm)

1.  Tour of the Mill for DEC Connection members only: Begins promptly at 11:30 at Bldg 12 (all are of the numbers of buildings are when Digital was there).

-       The main entrance to the Mill is across the street right after the Post Office on Main St. Only paid-up members are allowed on the tour - no significant others (as Mill & Main has restricted how many people can enter). You would have to climb stairs as some elevators may not be operational. The Mill is relatively non-descript with one building looking like another at this time. We will have a get-together in the Ken Olsen Conference Room to discuss significant Digital experiences with the audience. 

 Email info@decconnection.org to sign up, with name, email, cell phone.

2.  Digital group is marching in Maynard Town Parade at 1 pm.  The route is one and a half miles thru downtown Maynard.  All ex-DECcies, significant others and friends, DEC consultants, and DEC Connection members are invited to march in our group. (i.e., DEC Connection membership not required).  Wear your Digital clothing (get some new duds at www.decswag.com if you like), or not.

All who march in the Parade should show up by 12:30 pm at the Lower Thompson St. lot at Sudbury St just across from the St. Bridget Church (33 Sudbury St). This is a good place to park also (if it is not restricted). 

We have a Digital logo banner which we'll probably drape in front of one of the 2 cars.

DEC Connection member Stephen Jablonsky is driving his convertible in the parade, and can chauffeur 2 additional DEC Connection members who have disabilities and cannot walk well.  Another driver will take 3 more.  To inquire about space, email  info@decconnection.org.

3.  Visit Maynard exhibits after parade - There are other things to do in Maynard on Sept 19th including the murals at the Ken Olsen Square next to the Mill, and the Art Museum where the Maynard Historical Society will also exhibit items (several blocks up from the Post Office and the main entrance to the Mill on Florida Street ending up on Summer St. across the road).

The website for these events is: Maynard 150th Anniversary 1871 2021

4.  DEC Connection Dinner held at the Maynard Elks Club, 4 pm, with special guest speaker Ray Humphrey (Digital's VP Corp. Security, an extremely distinguished career in security afterwards, and a part-time James Bond).  Ray, who was a good friend of Ken, will share fascinating stories and vignettes of his time at Digital.

The dinner is subsidized by DEC Connection, catered by Flo's Catering, Inc. The cost for paid-up DEC Connection members is $15 and for non-members is $22. 

Dinner is now closed - we had to give caterer the number of attendees already.  You can be put on a waiting list at info@decconnection.org for spots that are canceled.

You can join or renew The DEC Connection on our website at this link.

     Location: Elks Lodge, 34 Powder Mill Rd., Maynard, MA 01754

     Menu: Garden Salad; Lasagna, Vegetable Lasagna, and Chicken Parmesan; Dinner Rolls w/butter; Dessert; Coffee Station. Drinks are available at a cash bar.

     Memorabilia Raffle:  At the dinner we will have a no-cost raffle for Digital memorabilia for paid-up members. If any of you have some memorabilia you would like to offer for this raffle, bring it to the dinner.
